I definitely should have moved south instead of north. Momentary lapse of reason or I'm just a plain idiot.
    Would that be a Village Idiot Jim?

    You got that right Mike. Reminds me of that saying when Obama was in office. Somewhere in Kenya a village is missing an idiot. Sorry to hear about your mentor Marshall Beam. I heard he was a hell of a guy.

    Ya know

    Its just as far to Georgia from Maine than it is from Maine to Georgia, did you know that Jim? It's just that the predominance of shooters has grown in the Southern states. It wasn't that many years ago IBS Score shoots were small and few in the South. When I started shooting Score in 1999. Pa and Md were the center of it all and when the Pa. ranges died off the balance shifted. The death of Mainville was the beginning, as I recall.

    The problem with all BR is so many ranges depend on one person to keep things running and many of the clubs that hold BR matches have few club members participating. The Nationals I ran had shooters from way out west attending. I think Washington State was the longest distance so mebby it's a Southern thing, not wanting to come to Maine but it wasn't a problem for Mr Washington State and I think he kicked butt as well.

    and it occurred to me that his may be a great time for you to bail out of Maine Jim. The Real Estate Market is hot right now and you may have the best opportunity to get out from under Maine, which you seem to detest so much, now. Don't you and your neighbor ever think Mainers have any higher opinion of you then you do of them. Youall left where you were because you were running away from something and not long after youall arrived you wanted things to be the same as they were where you came from. You certainly do not gain any ground by saying these sort of slanderous remarks on a National Forum, none of which are true. It only makes you look bad because anyone with any intelligence knows better. You owe the State of Maine and it's people an apology.
